Mary Forster Obituary

“In My Father’s House are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2

Mary Theresa (Flint) Forster (Tee Dee), 76 of Leonardtown, MD, full of faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ, ascended into one of those mansions on Tuesday October 3, 2023, in Clinton, MD.

Mary was born in Ticonderoga, NY on August 11, 1947, to the late Lester Thompson and Margaret Eulalia (Vogelson) Flint. She is also predeceased by her sister and sweetest angel, Ruth Frances (Ruthie) Flint and her beloved grandson, Robert Burke.
